"Sean’s music and presence added an extra special ambience to my 60th Birthday Party. His voice is beautiful and his songs melodic, inspiring and fun. His repertoire streams from self-penned to Irish folk to all around standards and his easy-going style and attitude blended in well with the guests. Thanks for making this momentous celebration even better than expected." Nancy Yopp, Wellington
"We had the pleasure of Sean’s company at a Permaculture event and remembered his beautiful tones. We immediately thought of him to help celebrate at an End of Chemo Party.
We knew the mood we wanted to create for our family gathering and we felt Sean’s style of music and his relaxed persona would flourish in our humble home. His music blends in to the setting very well and he has a lovely selection of songs. The children really enjoyed his interaction and we even had an impromptu group song! We received many positive comments from our guests in particular about the tranquil atmosphere that Sean created. He sings from his heart with a pure and molten voice. We would ask him back again." John and Victoria, Upper Hutt
Sean O’Connor, folk primadonna
Warmly humourous, stormily gloomerous
Sorting it out in music and lyric
Scarily serious sometimes satiric
So come and sit with my songs and tales
Voice, guitar and CD sales
Beautifully sung thought and emotion
And dutifully done self-promotion
Scorpio sun, Gemini ascendant
Forty some, balding, resplendent
Wannabee prophet, world wrong-righter
Sean O’Connor … singer/songwriter!
